    Come on, man. I am usually the first guy to apologize if I step out of line. You know it. Peace.

    I suppose if all you have to go on is AE & Alden then chunky it is.

    In years past, US shoes covered all ranges of styles, and the Gunboats (which i LOVE, of course) was only one of them.

    ^^^^^ stunning Moo- love to know more deets. and the trees !



    ^^^
    just a misunderstanding DW- it's clear Burton (below) didn't mean thistle as a generic part of a shoe - just that this shoe has a punched thistle design, and therefore the shoe's character has English/Scottish associations, so maybe meant as a rebuttal of my 'American shoe' comment.



    Quidditch shoes ? ^^^



    yes

    oh yeah- it's 'busy', but can't deny the mastery

    nice shoe, but what is the upper? Looks to be a different material/leather from the pic? I haven't read every single post so excuse me if someone has already commented what this is.

    These are nice, but I usually prefer my shoes's jolly rogers to be shell cordovan.

    Well, Patrick, I was going to get them done in Ravello Whiskey No 8 cigar shell, but they were all out. Maybe on my next pair. :)
